“The most relaxing hotel I've ever stayed in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

From start to finish, everything was first class in this terrific hotel in such a lovely part of Wales.
A double room with sea view for one night cost us £240. Yes expensive, but what a treat.
It was nice to do all the arrangements and transactions in Welsh? Both Angharad and Nia in reception speak Welsh. Diolch am y croeso.
On arrival, Nia took us to the room, and showed every thing we needed to know.
The hotel is beautifully renovated. Very modern and nice touches from the scented toilet paper to the sweets left on the bed, and from a personalised letter in the room on arrival to a pint of fresh milk in the fridge.
The weather was fantastic, therefore it was worth having a room with sea view and overlooking Saundersfoot.
We dined in the restaurant. The staff there were all French, but most produce were sourced locally. We really enjoyed the food. Good service and nice atmosphere.
First class breakfast as well.
Included in the price was the use of the spa facilities for 90 minutes. I could have stayed there all day. Both the spa and restaurant over look Saundersfoot and the harbour as well.
Checkout was at 11am. A bit early for me because I wanted to stay for longer.
My wife has fallen in love with the place, therefore will will return soon.

A special birthday break at this very special hotel. Friendly, attentive staff. Excellent food (a little rich for some) served in impressive dining room with views over the bay. Well furnished, comfortable bedroom.

Just went last week, as been when we were children, and remember the Hotel on the Hill,
My Husband wanted to go back and see what it was like, and to stop in the Hotel on the Hill!
we were not disappointed, we had a lovely stay, Hotel very clean, food very good, staff very good,
found the spar very good and we loved the infinity pool, this was in with the room, £210 a night
for this room with sea view, we just found the room a bit small, not much room to put clothes if you were staying longer! but still lovely room, will go again.

This was a special treat for a bride-in-waiting and her mum. With 4 days to go a pamper session seemed like a good idea. And it was . We had a fantastic time allowing a whole day for the pamper for two package. The weather was fine and the views spectacular but we were there for the quiet and soothing spa experience. We cant rate it high enough!! It was a brilliant time, fabulous food, comfy rooms and the spa day was superb. The staff were friendly and helpful, mindful of the bride to be and couldn't do enough for us. Other than paying silly money for a bottle of water ( my fault- forgot to say TAP water) the 3 days away was blissful. And the wedding... was lovely .The bride was glowing and relaxed. Mission achieved. Thank you St Brides

We made then amended our booking prior to arrival which was handled efficiently and confirmation emails received summarising changes. Warm welcome on arrival then personally shown to our (best) room and given assistance with luggage. The hotel has a ‘boutiquey’ feel about it and the service felt personal and friendly. The room size was smaller than expected however the view over the bay and round the headland was to die for. We were allocated room 115 which was on the corner with dual aspect hence more light. The room was spotless and the fixtures and fittings were of a very high standard. The bathroom was ‘open plan’ to the bedroom which I am not a huge fan of however this wasn’t an issue for us (the toilet door was frosted glass which didn’t give the feeling of total privacy). I requested a glass be delivered to the room when the turn down was performed and this was duly delivered and toiletries were regularly replaced.

The bar was calm and comfortable and the wine I chose delicious. For our evening meal I requested a table by the window (obviously for the views) and I was assured this would be accommodated if possible. We were later shown to the most perfect table and enjoyed a heavenly meal – I wished the night could have lasted forever. It was so romantic – or was that just because I have a lovely husband?! Both mornings we were shown to the same table so the view once again set us up for the day. At breakfast the morning we were leaving I lost an earring and the Manager and staff could not have been more helpful. I did find it in my clothing however I was impressed with their concern. I would definitely return and recommend to others.

Room Tip: 115 - A corner best room so dual aspect with more light.

What an absolutely stunning hotel. My wife and I had a short, special 1 night break, away from our 3 and 5 year olds and really could not have hoped for a more perfect place.

From the welcoming and friendly staff to the sensational panoramic views this hotel is superb. Our room was a "Good with balcony and seaview" and whilst not facing the harbour (the ultimate view I would say) still gave us a breathtaking sweep of the ocean to wake upto and enjoy from both the bed and the balcony itself. The "Good room" was quite small but beautifully decorated and presented, with a wonderfully comfortable bed.

We dined in the resturant on the evening and the food was fantastic as was the attentive service. Also the views from the restuarnt/bar etc are stunning at night with the lights of the harbour and town twinkiling below.

The spa, in particular the hydrotherapy pool with its infinity aspect is simply stunning - just be aware that you book a 90 minute slot for this rather than have unlimited use. whilst this might not suit some it actually enhances the spa experience as the whole complex (inc: sauna / Steam rooms etc) is only ever host to 10 people at any one time.

All in all this is a fantastic hotel in every way - As a romantic getaway it certainly takes some beating.

We can not wait to return !!
